Abstract:

In recent years, companies involved in contracting with the Department of Defense have organized project offices to manage the development and production of defense systems. The organizational structures and authority relations of these offices are unlike those common to other activities. The study sought to identify and explain the relationships that exist between structural and authority variables of project management systems. Data were collected by structured survey questionnaires directed to project managers and related functional managers. A correlational analysis was employed to measure the strength of relationships between attitudes and structural variables. Modified author abstract
